The displays also feature additional user interactions such as integrated optical IR multi-touch screen (BDL5545ET), One Wire allowing the user to not only send video and audio from the media player to the display, but all control and configuration commands as well, all via one single HDMI cable (both 55” models), and all five new models have full HD panels for crystal clear images and video, as well as a wide viewing angle and offer central configuration via RS232, ensuring simple control and configuration of all displays within the network.
